Hip-Hop History 2016 Mix

Start listening

The Rub is back with another year of hip-hop history!

2016 was a great for both bangers and experimentation: Rae Sremmurd and Migos released their biggest singles to date, Travis Scott continued his winning streak, and Anderson .Paak blew up in the underground. D.R.A.M. and Yachty broke through with the sublimely weird “Broccoli,” Young M.A. had her moment in the spotlight with “Ouuuuu,” and Lil Uzi Vert hit radio (more from him in 2017!). Despite it being the streaming era, rap fans were blessed with some great full length albums, most notably from Chance (Coloring Book), Kanye (Pablo), and Drake (Views from the 6) plus Tribe’s comeback (We got it from here…). Top it off with a dash of Missy, a pinch of 2 Chainz, and a drop of A$AP Ferg, and you have a stellar year of hip-hop!
